Traffic Tunnelling for efficient traffic arteries. By the middle of this century, the world‘s population is expected to have reached nine billion, and two thirds of these people will live in large conurbations. To keep people and goods on the move, the way ahead for new efficient infrastructures is leading underground. With state-of-the-art technologies, even in cramped and complex jobsite conditions efficient infrastructures are created exactly where they are needed. For the construction and expansion of urban metro systems Herrenknecht TBMs have built new tunnels in more than 700 projects. For the longest railway tunnel in the world under the Gotthard mountain range, machines from Herrenknecht excavated more than 85 kilometers of the 2 × 57 km long main tubes.

In 2016 alone Herrenknecht supplied around 60 large tunnel boring machines.
Utility Tunnelling for underground supply and disposal systems. As the world’s population grows the need for underground supply tunnels is also increasing; this is just as true for threshold and developing countries as for modern urban centers. That is why more than 850 Herrenknecht Utility Tunnelling Machines are in operation around the world constructing or laying water and wastewater systems, gas and oil pipelines, as well as conduits for electricity, Internet and telephone lines. Here, trenchless tunnelling technology offers a range of advantages compared to conventional construction procedures: transport, business and environment remain mostly undisturbed when Micromachines, HDD rigs or shaft sinking equipment are being used.
